Los Lonely Boys (Garza brothers Henry on guitar, JoJo on 6-string bass, and Ringo on drums) bring Texican rock'n'roll to Phoenix at the Arizona State Fair. There was no opening act, the Boys appeared and went straight into their set with very little preliminaries.
Reese Wynans (who played with SRV, among others) joined the Boys on organ for their set and takes a solo on "I Am The Man To Beat." Wynans was grinning like the Cheshire cat throughout the show, obviously enjoying playing with these exciting young musicians.
If you want to see how good these guys really are, buy their new DVD ("Live in Austin"). It's only about $10 and their musicianship and showmanship will amaze you! I think this Phoenix show was just as good (though maybe not as long) and Henry really stretches out on Onda!
I swapped MiniDiscs after "Senorita" so there is some loss of between song chatter before "Heaven" but I got all the music. I think this is one of my better live recordings, but there is the usual "audio verite" (aka - crowd noise).

The show is just a bit under 90 minutes. JoJo (or maybe it was Henry) annouced during the show that Ringo was sick, but you couldn't tell it from his playing!
Don't miss these guys if they ever play near you! You will not be disappointed!!!

I just started listening to these guys after hearing their name for so long and am glad I finally did. They're AWESOME! (check out Calexico if you haven't yet). This recording is a bit rough around the edges though. REither the recording levels were set too high, or the mics and/or MD on-board amp are being overloaded. Distortion is very apparent and makes you cringe a bit to listen. So close to being a great AUD. Crowd noise is acceptable, but the other issue isn't. After waiting 3 hours for this download, I'd have to say that I was disappointed. Judge for yourself.
